My Heart Is Really Acting Up

I don't know what's wrong with me. I haven't been to the Dr. yet. I have been having heart palpitations for a while now. But now something worse is happening. My heart will pound hard & fast. I can feel it sitting or standing but its worse laying down. My chest will get tight. Maybe a very small pain. Sometimes I feel a weird sensation through my body. I have shortness of breathe. I have felt a little light headed too. My hands will get cold & clammy. It happens most when I climb in bed to go to sleep at night. I have been losing a lot of sleep. It also happens at work or if I run or do any physical activity. This has been happening for a week now. I dont know if it's high blood pressure or what, but it is scaring me. Sometimes I think I am about to have a heart attack.

Re: My Heart Is Really Acting Up

Those are all potentially signs of heart trouble but only a cardiologist working you up with several tests will anyone know for sure. I would advise you to call your dr and get into a cardioligist soon. I was told that cardio stuff can go bad quickly so it is nothing to mess around with.

Call your doctor and insist on an appointment with a Cardiologist TODAY! Better yet, go to the ER. Something is wrong and your Doctor needs to act ASAP. You are just like me and then bam I had my first heart attack. GO GO GO!

Re: My Heart Is Really Acting Up

How are you now? What did the doctor say - have the palpitations subsided? Let us know.
